Mapping from a desktop on LAN to A dmz server

LAN has IP 10.10.x.x

DMZ has IP

Can I map a share on that DMZ server to the desktop without having to change from DHCP to fixed IP

DHCP vs. Static IP has no bearing on mapping shares.  You just need to make sure you have your router configured to route traffic between those 2 subnets.
Larry RungrenDirector of TechnologyAuthor Commented:
Well the guys that set this up (neither here any longer) have it structured this way:
incoming from XO Communications
Incoming from Comcast

both to Router separate cable from each ISP then one cable to firewall

to Firewall - NAT to servers on LAN

Any inside out traffic auto to Comcast unless came in XO The goes back out XO

Does this make sense...  This is the explanation I was given.
MikeIT ManagerCommented:
That's basically just load balancing and QoS.

Can you ping the machine in the DMZ you are trying to map to?  This is a pretty easy way to tell if you are routing traffic between those subnets.

The Firewall inside interface is and the DMZ is 172........

Can the Cisco firewall be configured to allow internal users to map/connect to DMZ?
MikeIT ManagerCommented:
You need to setup your router to route traffic between those subnets then.  You can't ping it or map to it because you aren't allowing traffic to be passed between them.
MikeIT ManagerCommented:
It should be able to.  I'm not very familiar with Cisco devices so I don't know the exact commands to run.  You should also make sure they are in fact 2 seperate subnets and not just VLANs.
